Horsetail and silica cured my hernia

MagazineMay 2005 (Vol. 16 Issue 2)Horsetail and silica cured my hernia

I suffered a hernia when in my 50s

I suffered a hernia when in my 50s. Having only Culpeper to hand, I crawled into the garden and ate horsetail (high in silica). I stayed sitting for most of three weeks. My son bought me some New Era Silica 450 tablets. I took the acute dose until the pain subsided. Thereafter, I have taken four Silica tablets every night. I am now 71 years old and have had no further trouble. - I. Lewis, Chippenham
